Small & narrow restaurant. The waitress kept bumping into our table while servicing the patrons next to us. Menu & wine selection were very good. The food quality & taste were very good. But, overall, imo, too pricey. Been there once, not again.

We dined here on New Year's Eve and found the service to be impeccable. The restaurant design and decor was authentic and we felt like we were dining in Florence. The seafood was fresh and the vegetarian entree was decent.

Our party of six dined at Bis before a Washington DC/Montreal hockey game (we were the out-of-towners). After a warm greeting, we enjoyed a delicious meal, excellent wine and exceptional service. Hats off to Bis...I highly recommend this restaurant!

We had an incredible dinner at Bis. The service was incredible from the coat check to the table. No detail was overlooked. The wine recommendation was spot on. Our entire table was happy with their food choices. I don't think anything on the menu would be disappointing ! This is on my list for repeat visits ... Loved it💝

Probably the best meal I have ever had anywhere, Extremely professional and friendly service and the food was beyond reproach with great atmosphere. We tried half a dozen appetizers and an antipasto dish to start and thought we went to heaven. Didn't think it could get any better and then we had the rack of lamb. I would recommend this... More

The food and service were both nothing less than perfect. We tried the veal chop and the seafood. Both perfectly prepared and served. I really recommend this restaurant. No wonder it was the George colony's favorite restaurant while he was staying in Montreal.

Staying in Centre-Ville (Downtown)

Neighbourhood Profile
Centre-Ville (Downtown)
Montreal's towering skyline is concentrated in the Downtown area, its nexus of commerce and commercialism. A suffusion of luxury hotels, flagship stores, high-end restaurants, and corporate headquarters characterize the neighborhood, which by nightfall transforms from a business district into a youth-culture hotspot, with hip bars, clubs, and restaurants heavily peopled by students and young professionals. The once-seat of millionaire's 'Golden Square Mile', an incongruity of stately mansions and dapper brownstones sit between glass skyscrapers, creating a visually lush urban landscape. Beneath the sidewalks lay the Underground City, the world's largest below-ground mall, a labyrinth of over 1,500 shops and eateries that echo the profusion of cafes, gallerias, cinemas, and fashion outlets above. From the scholarly array at McGill University to the carousing crowds of Rue Crescent, visit Downtown to shop by day for what you'll wear there by night.
